Makesense & the global goals
We engage thousands of citizens and social entrepreneurs across the world to build local solutions for the Global Goals. We partner with both governments and companies to scale our best solutions.
To maximize our impact, MakeSense is launching a program on disruptive technologies. We believe that these technologies when plugged in with the right communities will solve the Global Goals faster.
MakeSense and its partners will host a series of events, online classes and workshops in Lisbon to democratize disruptive technologies and connect communities on the ground.
